Exciting New Changes to Paperweight and Soft Lax for 2017!
We didn’t want the little ones to feel left out as we have updated and improved our program for the older age groups over the past two seasons. This year we’re excited to offer two separate divisions for our youngest group – Soft Lax and Paperweight.
Soft Laxers, who are in their first year of lacrosse, will have an hour of games, skills, and drills with short half-floor scrimmages at the end of their session. The focus for this group will be fundamentals, maximum ball contact, and fun! Players in this division will use soft lacrosse balls and require only a helmet, mouthguard, gloves, and a stick.
|WHO:||players born in 2013|
|WHEN:||Saturdays at 10am|
|REQUIRED:||helmet, mouthguard, gloves, and stick|
|CONTACT:||No contact; no possession rule|
Paperweights will still have a 30-minute practice followed by a 30-minute game but games this year will be full floor! Older players will benefit from this format as they start to learn the rules and flow of lacrosse. Players in this division require full lacrosse equipment.
|WHO:||players born in 2011 and 2012|
|WHEN:||Saturdays at 9am, 11am, or 12pm|
|CONTACT:||No contact; 7-second rule|
